5. iOS 11 Notes tips
Quickly create a checklist: Force press on the Notes app icon and choose “New Checklist” and then start creating your checklist immediately.
How to share and collaborate on notes: There’s a new share icon within Notes that looks like the silhouette of a person and a “+” icon next to it. Tap it, and you can add contacts who can view or make changes in real time.
Turning on passwords in Notes: To password protect Notes To do this go to Settings > Notes > Password. Here you can set a default password for all your notes, and if you have TouchID enable that feature too.
- Once you’ve turned the feature you have to individually enable the password lock on the Note itself. To do this go to the Note in question, and press the share icon and then the “Lock Note” icon. That merely adds the lock icon to the Note. Complicated we know.
- Now tap on the icon to lock the Note. Next time you access it you will need the password. Be warned if you are trying to access it on a iOS device you’ve not updated to 9.3 or later you won’t be able to access it on that device.
Sketch in Notes: Force press on the Notes app icon, then choose “New Sketch”.Now scribble away until your heart’s content.
Save attachments to Notes: The system-wide Share button has added support for Notes. So when in Safari, for instance, tap the Share button to save attachments, such as a link or document, to a new or existing note. There’s also an Attachments browser in Notes that organises attachments in a single view (tap the grid icon in the lower-left corner).
